Slicing Up Another Week…

 

 

Friday Favorites, Flops and Food

 

I couldn’t be happier to see this crazy week come to an end. All in all it was a good one, but I’m looking forward to spending Easter Sunday with my family and eating candy!

Flops

If you follow the news, you’re either thrilled about no collusion & obstruction or your thrilled that there was collusion & obstruction. Once again, proof that words can be spun to fit any narrative. It’s a wash and a waste of 32 million dollars. What a flop!

The fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in France is devastating. I can’t shake the feeling that it was arson. 7 other churches across France burned last week too and the number of church fires over the past year is staggering.

Friday Favorites, Flops and Food-and Flowers…

Friday Favorites, Flops and Food

 

I know its cliché, but the weeks seem to be floating by leaving me feeling like I’m missing something or not living life to the fullest.

One of my goals for this year is to slow my days down and to be present and mindful of every minute. Another goal is to enjoy every season. In the past I would hibernate over the winter. I’m positive winter will never be my favorite season, but cute boots, leggings and cozy sweaters made it so much more comfortable.

A month I’d like to sleep through is April.

Friday Favorites, Flops and Food

I was unsure about seeing the Disney remake of DUMBO.

The critics and the reviews haven’t been especially kind. Another reason I was unsure was because my youngest daughter Jill saw the original animated film (1941) in the 1980’s and she was inconsolable for days. It was too sad for adults let alone children.

The Monthly Meeting of The Insecure Writers Support Group

Welcome to the last 2018 posting of The Insecure Writers Support Group.

I can’t be the only one down on myself because I haven’t completed my 2018 writing goals. Am I? There are still a few weeks left so all isn’t lost.

The purpose of this group is to share and encourage or to receive inspiration. Writers can freely express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer others assistance and guidance. It’s a safe-haven for insecure writers of all kinds!

Knight In Tarnished Armor…

 

Sadly I think we all know someone who is in or who has been in some sort of an abusive relationship or maybe you are in one ore where in one yourself.

I met Pam a few years ago and she is so inspiring and so dedicated to the domestic abuse cause.  With October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I thought it would be the perfect time to introduce you to her and to congratulate her on the release of Knight In Tarnished Armor. It’s a great book and a moving story.

Are You Guilty of Road Rage?

Are you guilty of Road Rage? Have you been a victim of Road Rage?

Road rage attacks seem to happen in multiples in my area. I can’t help but wonder why. Is it the weather, the time of year, the time of day, the position of the moon that causes this volatile behavior?

Whenever I hear or read the words road rage my body stiffens and my heart starts to race. My brother, musician David Albert was beaten to death in a road rage attack. His crime was stopping at every stop sign and looking both ways. It happened on a beautiful tree-lined street in the small town of Bristol Borough, Pennsylvania.
